13 Jackets Named to Daily Commercial All-Area Team

LEESBURG - The 1970 Leesburg Yellow Jackets had some of the greatest talent ever assembled in
the history of Leesburg High School Football. They placed 13 players on the Daily Commercial All-Area
team that year. The All-Area Team was selected from High Schools from Lake and Sumter Counties.

The most notable player to make that team was
Greg Johnson who later was drafted by the
Philadelphia Eagles in the 1976 NFL draft. Johnson was an offensive and defensive selection during
his career at Leesburg. Johnson would later have his number retired at Leesburg High School.

Andy Carlton made the second team offense that year. He would later go on to play quarterback at
Wake Forest University. He and Johnson's Florida State University teams faced each other in the early
the 70's.
